Iowa Man Spends Hour in Septic Tank
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Maybe you think you had a lousy Christmas, but if you do just be glad you did not spend it like Robert Schoff. He's 77 years old from Des Moines, Iowa. He was checking his septic tank on December 24th, and he fell in. He spent an hour on Christmas Eve hanging upside down on the opening with his head inside and his feet kicking in the air. It was his wife who finally discovered him and saved Christmas.
